Human Factors and Usability in Medical Device Development


Understanding and applying human factors is essential to ensuring product usability and user satisfaction. More importantly, consideration of human factors during the design and development of medical devices helps to ensure patient safety by minimizing the risks introduced by user error. This course begins with the fundamental principles of human factors and builds on that foundation each week to cover core concepts and demonstrate how human factors fit into the larger context of medical device software and hardware development.

Medical Device Verification and Validation


Verification and validation is the process of determining whether a medical device and its manufacturing process meets design input requirements and ensures that devices conform to defined user needs and intended uses. It answers the questions, "Are you building the right safe and effective device?" and "Are you building it right?"


One of the most common reasons that ISO auditors and the FDA issue warning letters is because they notice an inadequate verification and validation—or a complete lack thereof.
